Food Pantry

For questions related to the food pantry, please visit Food Pantry FAQs.

As a campus community we strive to promote the well-being and success of all of our Puget Sound community. In our purpose to support our Puget Sound, specifically those struggling with food insecurities and/or lack of consistent access to nutritious and/or affordable foods, the Center for Intercultural and Civic Engagement (CICE) hosts an on-campus food pantry. We respect the identities and backgrounds of all members on this campus and we strive to make this food pantry a welcoming place for all who need its contents. We invite you to visit the food pantry during the hours listed below as needed.

Please email foodjustice@pugetsound.edu if you have questions or comments, and feel free to use the suggestions/question box within the pantry.

Location: The food pantry is located in the Student Diversity Center at 3216 N. 13th St. (right across from the Yellow House). Please feel free to come on in and find the pantry located in the nook in the kitchen.

Hours: Open Monday through Sunday, 7 am – 10 pm. Note: the SDC where the food pantry is housed is only accessible with your campus ID—so please don't forget it!
